RIFLEMAN'S JOURNAL - APRIL 2016
The World Sucks
You ever notice how the people protesting against "censorship" are the same people calling for "some muscle over here" to throw out a guy with a camera, and having tantrums over sidewalk chalk?
You ever notice how the people insisting they don't "discriminate" are the same people who host events where white people are specifically excluded?
You ever notice how the people bleating the loudest about "tolerance" are the same people calling for five million NRA members to be rounded up and exterminated?
By which I mean France, actually overrun with Islamic-terrorist-immigrants but throwing people in jail over emoticons in text messages. ...In my fictional utopia France, in response to the Second Holocaust, launches what I suppose must be called the Third, exterminating Islam in retaliation. France again becomes the world's leading superpower, taking over the United Nations and evolving it into the Terran Empire, which subsequently launches a war of expansionist aggression against those damn Jeffersonian rebels who just wanted to be left alone. That future history hasn't jumped the tracks yet.
AND AS IF ON CUE.
AND WE CAN'T EVEN SAY THE REAL ENEMY'S NAME.
Jizyah in Occupied California. Maybe they could make them wear special patches on their clothes too.
This is what happens when the government runs the schools.
MASSIVE. VOTE. FRAUD. WE TOLD YOU SO.
Aaaaand again with Veterans Affairs. Scroll down there for details and links.
Burn in Hell, pigs.
All of you.

Striking back in Oklahoma. I demand jail time for any thief-with-a-badge who ever "confiscated" an "illegal" knife.
Speaking of striking back against thieves with badges, a step against asset forfeiture. This has been going on for decades, without even pretending to have due process. We really need to start hanging these thieves....

"Background checks" have never been about "safety". They have always been about registration.
Uppity in Illinois-of-all-places this Wednesday.
Okay, so, apparently there's some guy named Kerodin who claims, demonstrably falsely, to be the founder and/or leader of the Three Percent movement, and sells a bunch of stuff with the III logo and claims copyrights and whatnot. I gather he's full of **it and is possibly a few different kinds of crook also. Anyhow don't give him your money.
Speaking of hypocrisy, remember how the Democrats were slandering Republicans by saying the Republican plan for health care was to have patients die early? Tell me again how Obamacare Death Panels are a paranoid fantasy.
Fresh Market grocery stores ban blacks, Jews, gaysOH. WAIT. Explain to me the moral difference. Explain how you're not advertising and attracting the next massacre by guaranteeing no one will be able to stop it.
BURN THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS
AND THE COLLEGES TOO
To which dot connect Federal blackmail of states, using other people's taxes. Makes a fella think about secession, it does.
Show, chat & show every Sunday 1100 and 1700PT.
So around town I've been seeing billboards from the creationists shouting about evidence for God and now SWARM OF BEES ATTACKS ARIZONA MOSQUE
Fabbers are getting better all the time.
Reworking the front page icons, eliminating the ones listed as state affiliates of NAGR which apparently never actually does anything but sell bumper stickers, rearranging the rest alphabetically by state.
Now I have to divert the next

"Treason against the United States

No seriously, what DOES happen when the EBT cards stop working?
REAL SPACE ENTHUSIASTS HATE NA$A GET OUT OF THE F***ING WAY YOU TAX-EATING BUREAUCRAT PARASITES
Speaking also of taxes, there was a train wreck near Philadelphia, less than one year after a train wreck in Philadelphia. "The National Railroad Passenger Corporation, doing business as Amtrak, is a partially government-funded American passenger railroad service." With no competition, guaranteed at government gunpoint. I'm just sayin'.
Tell me again how government is "transparent" and "represents the people". This is exactly the kind of behavior that makes people want to buy guns, without "background check" government registration. I need to get out of this horrible place before it sends some hired-thug-with-a-badge to shoot me in the back.
And that's not hyperbole, because dehumanizing an opponent is a precursor to genocide.
Tennessee's Constitutional Carry effort suffers RINO backstabbing. Get in there.
Speaking of backstabbing, tell me again what I'm getting for my NRA life membership.
EVERYTHING IS GETTING WORSE ALL THE TIME
In the news, what appears to be one of the last outright handgun bans in United States territory, in the Marianas Islands, has been struck down as unConstitutional, under the 14th Amendment incorporation principles of the Heller and McDonald cases. This is an important precedent which seriously weakens the whole concept of prohibiting self-defense.
In North Carolina, grassroots activism works. Think about the kind of people who want to hold their meetings behind closed doors, or who instruct their staff to filter and ignore certain kinds of communication.
Likewise, uppity in Illinois-of-all-places this Wednesday.
The other day, Ian McCollum of ForgottenWeapons.com posted a video of one of the prototype Garands for auction. Today it's a Japanese gas-operated Pedersen-like-object with considerable historical background.

[2:17:29 PM] SMLE Fan: changed the litter, put in fresh...Mr. Cheerful hops in there, poops, and then proceeds to spread litter all over the floor. Sigh. Looks like a litter carpet in there
[2:17:47 PM] Jeffersonian: A box with taller walls perhaps?
[2:18:07 PM] SMLE Fan: or I should put the lid on it
[2:21:44 PM] Jeffersonian: Or get that big cement-mixer-looking powered model
[2:21:52 PM] Jeffersonian: Guaranteed to make ur kitteh poop... SOMEWHERE
[2:22:01 PM] SMLE Fan: indeed
[2:22:38 PM] SMLE Fan: plus there's the concern of what Entropy Cat will do to it once he figures out that the thing is his
[2:23:03 PM] SMLE Fan: POOP CANNON
[2:23:30 PM] Jeffersonian: How many titles of nobility is this cat going to end up with? Deathwalker, Blood-drinker, Destroyer....
[2:24:12 PM] SMLE Fan: unsure...he's still quite young...every day he manages to think up new and exciting forms of mischief

[2:25:31 PM] SMLE Fan: I bought 60 cans of food: 12 flavurs, 5 each...so of course he invites himself up onto the counter to help me sort them all out
[2:25:55 PM] Jeffersonian: Down to one flavor, Friskies Beef Shreds
[2:26:17 PM] Jeffersonian: He actually eats those, usually, instead of licking the sauce off and leaving them
[2:27:19 PM] SMLE Fan: I get the pah-tay...two dishes half a can each...they eat some of what's been placed in front of them, then go over and "steal" what the other one has....snerk
[2:27:43 PM] Jeffersonian: do nawt want pate
[2:27:57 PM] Jeffersonian: I suspect it's the texture
[2:28:19 PM] Jeffersonian: He seems healthy enough, not like it's hurting him to eat, he's just picky
[2:28:33 PM] Jeffersonian: Friskies Grillers kibble he also eats
[2:29:18 PM] SMLE Fan: FloCat now prefers the pate (after 12 years of the goopy stuff. Cats). Deathwalker just wants food, which is the nice thing about kittens, who generally are happy that dinner is (mostly) dead before they start in
[3:32:59 PM] SMLE Fan: okay, I put the lid on the litterbox, not that I think that will solve the prollem...I should look into one of those astroturf doormats, too.
[3:35:54 PM] SMLE Fan: so I sweep up 90% of the litter and put it back where it belongs, and then I take out the vacuum, which is a shop vac, not one of those wimpy house units...I plug it in, hit the switch, and the misbegotten Son of Chaos just stands there to see what I'm doing....does he jump into the transporter and set it for Elsewhere? No. No, he does not. He watches me vacuum up litter, dust and a few spiderwebs off the wall. He is fascinated.... What have I adopted?
[3:36:22 PM] Jeffersonian: IT IS THE ANTIKITTEH
[3:36:31 PM] Jeffersonian: NOW YOU HAVE TO NAME HIM DAMIEN
Speaking of the enemy, in my fictional future history, widespread Islamic terrorism results in a resurgent France rising to world dominance while exterminating Islam. Still on track.
Col. Kratman's latest column continues examining the border. "...[W]hat we have getting ready to kick off in the American Southwest is about one hundred times worse than Northern Ireland at the height of the Troubles." See also Bracken's Enemies triliogy. And that's why Arizona, despite having Constitutional Carry, is not a leading contender for relocation.
And as if on cue.
I've said I need to get out of this horrible place before it murders me and that's not hyperbole. "...[The] state attorneys general [of] California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington State, as well as the attorneys general of the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands... are threatening legal action and huge fines against anyone who declines to believe in an unproven scientific theory." And these are the same people who demand separation of church and state....
What if there really is a deliberate and concerted effort to misinform everyone about everything?
Again with the doctors. How is asking if a patient has a gun in the home morally different from asking if they have a Jew in the home? Don't tell me you weren't warned.
Culturally related, Nashville Fairgrounds bans JewsOH. WAIT.
"How many BDS idiots would 'boycott' a cure for their cancer, or a new chip for their cell phone made in Judea, out of 'principle'?"
THERE'S NOTHING HOLDING IT UP
IT WILL ALL COME CRASHING DOWN
WHAT IF IT'S NOT A PARANOID CONSPIRACY THEORY?
There is a part of me that really wishes there would be a collapse-of-society event so all these preciouslittlesnowflakes would starve, or freeze, or become something's lunch. Instead they're trying to enslave the rest of us through taxes and EBT cards and "hate speech" "laws" and "tolerance" and "inclusiveness" and a "government monopoly on violence".
Which segues to:
OMG PR0N WEBLEY-FOSBERY - THAT PROTOTYPE THING THAT BECAME THE P.38 - LUUUUUUUUUGERS
I have never owned a Ruger Mark-series pistol (a 22/45 is on my wi$h li$t), but I gather their disassembly is of the "John-Browning-Didn't-Design-That" variety. (Ditto the Browning BuckMark family, with three hex screws on top. I did own a S&W M22A for a while and that was simple to take apart (also plenty accurate), but cheap stamped-and-riveted guts, and a design flaw in the rear barrel latch, prone to breakage, which mine did once, though the factory fixed it.) I know someone is offering a conversion kit to reduce the number or inconvenience of fiddly-bits. Here is a new tool to simplify the task.
JAYNE COBB NARRATES LARRY CORREIA "It is kind of like a hyper violent American version of Dr. Who, only with more Combat Wombats."
Finished Bujold's Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen, a nice story conspicuously lacking in murderous intrigue or jump-gate-destabilizing wars. It seems to function as a bit of recap for the whole Vorkosigan Saga and gives closure to the main characters. Happy endings for everyone who survived the previous dozen-odd volumes. Beginning Worst Contact, yet another Baen collection.
Okay, so, I'm using Linux now. I'm also using the Opera browser, which I have been for maybe twenty years. In Opera, I have a bazillionty bookmarks, arranged in folders (it was a very warmfuzzy moment when they were successfully imported after I made the jump to Linux). Many of these bookmarks are webcomics, which are arranged by the day of the week based on when they update. Until recently I've been able to select all the bookmarks in a folder, right-click, and open them all at once in new tabs - very convenient. A couple updates ago, however, that function failed. It still works if I try it right after rebooting and launching Opera for the first time, but if I have anything in the Clipboard which I do all the effing time because I'm copy-pasting a bazillionty different things a bazillionty times a day, it just refuses to work. So now I have to use the scroll-wheel-button to launch each link in a new background tab, going down the list. But that has a bug too now; if I have a URL in the clipboard, it adds the URL as a new bookmark in the folder when I click the scroll-wheel-button. Though it also opens a tab with the bookmark I clicked on. Opera Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
One solution would be to find a way to clear the clipboard. Apparently there was a way in Windows, buried under a few layers of maintenance/security menus. In Linux it appears to require an actual application be added to the system and run through the Terminal with actual Linux-language commands. Why has no one come up with a keystroke to do it, in all these years? I propose [Ctrl]-[Shift]-[Z].
Well. At least I'm not running a Bill Gates product anymore.
Even the government school administrators don't trust the government schools with their children. Why should you?
In Oklahoma, a boot-licking Quisling.
In my fictional future history I predicted the reinstitution of human slavery.
Registration does lead to confiscation. EVERY TIME.
Police are predators and they do view us as prey.
Police are worse than what they claim to be "protecting" us from,
because they know they will get away with robbing us at
implied-or-actual gunpoint, or murdering us if we resist.
You've got to stop thinking of police as human beings.
They stopped thinking of us that way a long time ago.
Mississippi gets closer to Constitutional Carry. That would make seven and three halves.
Remember, peasant, private citizens using their own firearms to defend themselves or prevent massacres is a fantasy that never happens.
"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them...."
Blood Libel o' the Day. If guns cause crime, why do the places the guns come FROM have so much LESS crime?
Reiterating, my fictional future history has widespread Islamic terrorism leading to a pendulum-swinging backlash resulting in an oppressive and totalitarian Terran Empire. Still on track. Of course so is Kratman's.
BURN THE COLLEGES
BECAUSE THESE GENOCIDAL BIGOTS HAVE THE GALL TO CALL US "RACIST". You want to imagine a world without whiteness? Mud huts and plague.
The Department of Veterans Affairs appears to be composed almost entirely of sociopaths. And the regime think the military will obey orders.
It's been said that while other countries build walls to keep people in, America builds them to keep people out. NOT ANYMORE PEASANT
Alabama moves toward a piece of Constitutional Carry. Increments. Just like the enemy's been doing to us for decades. But: "The Alabama Sheriff's Association spoke out against the bill." Tell me again how "law enforcement supports the Second Amendment" and "the sherrrrriffs will saaaaaaaaaaave us".
For many moons I've been asking who defines "mental health"?
By which I mean and bears repeating, envirofascist thought police telling you what to think at government gunpoint.
AND AS IF ON CUE. Dehumanizing an opponent is a precursor to genocide.
On the other end of the equation, stacking the Supreme Court. Everything Hitler did was "legal" too.
And that's not hyperbole when the "tolerant", "inclusive" people really are openly calling for the brutal assault and violation of anyone who disagrees with them.
In California, people will be allowed to buy only one book every thirty days, only from a government-approved list, and all such purchases will be registered with the governmentOH. WAIT.
Just yesterday I said a world without whiteness would be mud huts and plague and here's a timely visual aid: "...[T]he Social Justice Warriors have invented a form of synthetic injustice to keep the outrage machinery well-lubricated." You keep calling us "racist". Do you want us to be racist? "When white people riot they don't burn down their own neighborhoods."
Which segues to THIS IS WHY I HATE GOING TO THE SUPERMARKET
AND WHEN I DO I USE THE SELF-CHECKOUT
For further example, "Remember the 'bail-out' of General Motors that later led to the sobriquet 'Government Motors?' ...Chinese-manufactured Cadillacs will now be imported and sold to US customers."
SPACEX SUCCESSFULLY LANDS AN ORBITAL LAUNCH VEHICLE ON A SHIP AT SEA. Actually the last time they tried they did land and then it fell over because a fiddly-bit was iced up. And they successfully landed on land the time or two before that. So for the second time ever, and the first time at sea, millions of dollars of orbital launch hardware have not been thrown away. THAT'S A BIG DEAL.
Campus Carry action in Alaska. Which already has Constitutional Carry.
Speaking of, Mississippi is almost there.
I am reminded that Canada has never been a free country either. If Benedict Arnold had taken Quebec I'd probably be naming one of my fictional starships after him....
California is getting worse all the time.
Speaking of getting worse all the time, Immigrants. Contributing. To Society.
I guess Fox News counts as Old Media now. I've had this page up for years (file last modified eight years and one week ago). And yes, if the universe ever stops pooping on me, I intend to make more of these.
Bears repeating: LANDING ON HER TAIL IN A GLORIOUS COLUMN OF FIRE LIKE GOD AND ROBERT HEINLEIN INTENDED.
I have pointed out that SpaceX is recovering orbital launch vehicles which must expend and counter an order of magnitude more energy than Jeff Bezos' suborbitals and Popular Mechanics has the Visual Aids.
Speaking of space, there was an anime of harder-than-usual science looking at the problem of orbital debris, which is a real thing which is being worked on.
Think about the kind of people who want you to beg their permission to defend yourself. Think about the kind of people who refuse to believe the results in that x-shaped chart. Don't gimme that "correlation is not causation" whining. That's one helluva lot of correlation.
Tomorrow I get the last

Adding Honored American Veterans Afield to the front and links pages. As opposed to the admittedly anti-self-defense and probably crooked Wounded Warrior Project.
Battleground Nevada... remember when the ratchet clicked tighter in your state, with a "loophole" being "closed" or a "common sense" "law" being enacted? Nevada has a chance to stop it before it happens.
Two hundred forty-one years ago next Tuesday, an attempt to confiscate weapons triggered our War of Independence. LESSON NOT LEARNED.
"Oh that 'slippery slope' argument is just paranoid! They'll never come after Granpa's Thutty-Thutty!"
"TOLERANT" AND "INCLUSIVE". These horrible bigots really would like to exterminate us. Genocidal monsters like this are why we buy guns.
For further heavy-handed example, China. Think about the kind of people who want us to be more like them.
It's not "racist" if they really are habitually violent predators. And how is that my fault?
To which dot connect, Burn the Government Schools, Chapter MMMMDCLXXX. Note how it's all being blamed on an underling, just like the IRS discrimination against conservative groups.
Immigrants! Contributing! To Society! '"The contempt for white girls among some Muslim men has been highlighted by the recent scandals in Rotherham, Oxford, Rochdale and other towns. But this merely reflects a deeply ingrained sexism that runs through Britain's Muslim communities" - in a nod to those who have long protested this to be the case in the face of political, media, and even police cover ups."
REPEAL ACTION IN OCCUPIED COLORADO. TELL YOUR STATE LEGISLATOR TO SUPPORT SENATE BILL 16-113.

Back here I saw some Smith & Wesson revolvers with telescoped cartridges, the bullet being set back below the case mouth, like the M1895 Nagant gas-seal revolver but not for that reason. I wondered why they did that. At the last little show ($igh), a guy from the Smith & Wesson Collectors Association showed off some examples, and explained it was to reduce internal case volume, to ensure reliable ignition for reduced powder charges for gallery loads. Learned a thing!
Blood Libel on campus. ...There are people who still read Newsweek? Ewww....
More of the same in Michigan. Genocidal bigots like those are why we buy guns.
Gun registration scheme in Nevada. What have you done to stop it?
Envirofascists kill jobs. And then wonder why new housing costs so much, and then demand subsidies from the taxes of the working-class people whose jobs they killed.
Speaking of killing jobs, FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR.
Col. Kratman's latest column examines demographic warfare. See also Bracken's Enemies trilogy which examined very much the same concepts. "Note that the ability to terrorize increases as legal access to personal arms falls...." "You know you're screwed when the only solutions you can see, and which you know would work, involve either re-institution of slavery or the recreation of the SS."
To which dot connect Immigrants. Contributing. To Society. Are they trying to incite a genocidal backlash? Because Europeans have done that before and they know how.
Speaking of bloody civil war, Michael G. points out today is the anniversary of the start of our last one. Mike Vanderboegh famously warned, "No Fort Sumters" - Our Side cannot shoot first. Valid arguments can be made that the shooting has begun - Waco, Ruby Ridge, Lavoy Finicum, thousands more hidden behind the Thin Blue Curtain - but the EBT-swiping tabloid-readers need more than that to make them put down their Free Stuff and brain-rotting lowbrow entertainment. They believe what they're told, and their votes cancel ours....
Real space enthusiasts hate government space programs. A firm grasp of the wrong end of the equation. We don't need an act of government to reach space, we don't need redistribution of wealth at government gunpoint to build a spaceship, we need government to GET OUT OF THE WAY.
Donald Trump shouldn't be running for President, he should be competing with Elon Musk to build the first hotel-casino-resorts in Luna City and Marsport....
You ever notice how the people who always wail about separation of church and state are the same people who want to burn the heretics on a government stake?
"Making everyone equally poor is not progress."
Ongoing repeal action in Occupied Colorado. Pitch in.
Things like exposing Project Gunwalker....
"Clearly the answer is to ban chalk...."
Think about the kind of monsters who want you to sympathize with the rapist/murderer instead of defending yourself.
Think about the kind of monsters who FANTASIZE ABOUT YOUR CHILDREN SUFFERING HORRIBLE DEATHS.

The Prophet Heinlein said, "Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort." Every tool created to fight terrorists today can be used to oppress the innocent tomorrow.
Barrett Factory Tour Pr0n remember Ronnie Barrett halted sales and service to LAPD and other police departments in states where regular citizens are not allowed to buy the same things.

LINUX IS LOOKING BETTER ALL THE TIME
I FINISHED THE TAXES.
Astoundingly, not as bad as I feared.
I have been saving receipts and

In celebration, I've signed up for
my first Appleseed in six and a half years.
CMP season is coming, such as it is
with interest waning and
fuel and ammunition costs rising and
restrictions both on and off the range growing and
the guys running it getting old and worn-out,
but I've been kind of sucking at it the last several times and
I don't like that.

DEMOGRAPHIC WARFARE KILLS JOBS. TELL ME AGAIN ABOUT MY "WHITE PRIVILEGE" WHEN EVERYONE BUT WHITES ARE BEING HIRED FOR THE COLOR OF THEIR SKINS.
How long until income taxes are adjusted, in either direction, based on ethnicity? In the name of "social justice"? You know they've been thinking about it for decades. Of course if you consider massive welfare fraud you realize it's already been happening for decades.
It's a common collectivist-statist fantasy that they can just order the Air Force to bomb those knuckle-dragging gun-nut rebels in Montana or Texas. WHAT IF THEY DON'T FEEL LIKE OBEYING THOSE ORDERS? What if the regime has so thoroughly and methodically and deliberately insulted and humiliated and abused the entire military for so long that the military will turn their weapons on the regime instead of on the people?
At least once I've read an account of someone getting their M1 from CMP and blowing it up with the wrong ammunition. DON'T PUT COMMERCIAL AMMUNITION IN THE M1 GARAND. I use surplus, like the Greek HXP, when issued at a CMP-affiliated club for an official CMP match, or I handload. The load I developed is identical to one of the loads on this list, which I discovered after I developed it.

Project Gunwalker, aka Operation Fast and Furious, was neither "botched" nor "sting".

More than a hundred years, a hundred million murdered and counting, but remember, peasant, real socialism has never been tried.
We know Austrailia is an evil place where criminals have a safe work environment because their victims are prohibited by "law" from defending themselves. Michael G. points out they're also in an economic death-spiral. "...[E]stimated that only 43 per cent of the adult population excluding public sector workers were net taxpayers last year...." And that is what I mean when I say THERE'S NOTHING HOLDING IT UP.
MISSISSIPPI GETS CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY. That makes seven and three halves, three two and a half of them just this year and it's only April. TWENTY PERCENT OF THE STATES OF THE UNION ALLOW PEACEABLE CITIZENS TO CARRY THE MEANS OF SELF-DEFENSE WITHOUT BEGGING SOME BUREAUCRAT BIGOT'S PERMISSION.

Watermelons: Envirofascist on the outside, communist on the inside. And then they complain about higher energy prices and demand subsidies.

In Tennessee, an unstable bigot wants to force his mental illness on everyone who isn't sick. But they call us "nuts".
Remember, peasant, we should be more enlightened and democratic and egalitarian, like Europe"A senior Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for the German Green Party has called for an end to referendums on issues 'not suitable' for direct democracy because they threaten the very existence of the European Union (EU)."

REPEAL ACTION IN OCCUPIED COLORADO. Pitch in.
I've been an all-Linux operation for a year or so now. In Linux, most things are free for the downloading. One such is DeVeDe, a DVD authoring program. It allows you to take video files, like from your camera or captured from YouTube, stick them in menus, and create a playable DVD as an .ISO file, which can then be burned to a blank DVD with another free program, Brasero, or even transferred to a Windows machine and burned with something I expect is native to MicroSoft. IT APPEARS TO WORK AS ADVERTISED and now I have a capability I never could figure out in Windows. You can even add subtitles as .SRT files, which are just text files made of timing codes formatted a certain way, which anyone can (tediously) make with any-old text editor. Linux is Looking Better All the Time.

Science-fiction enthusiasts, futurists, technophiles, are increasingly using the term "fabbers", short for fabricators, of which the 3D printer is a rapidly-evolving ancestor.

A year or two ago there was a rumor that Winchester (Hodgdon) would be discontinuing W231, my favorite handgun powder and that of many other people. Could this be its replacement?

Remember, peasant, REAL SOCIALISM HAS NEVER BEEN TRIED.
I WENT TO APPLESEED for the first time in six and a half years.
Rather a shock, these days, to hear someone openly praising the rebels at Lexington and Concord and recounting the grievances in the Declaration of Independence. I was surrounded by thought-criminals all day. Srsly I expected some haughty veeegan to sic the sociopaths-with-badges on us while slashing our tires. This is what's become of the very first thing in the Bill of Rights - you don't dare express your beliefs for fear of random violence or governmental oppression.
I'm out of shape. I can see Fifty coming over the horizon, I have the family arthritis, and the spare tire is In The Way. Prone is still not much of a problem but the traditional Sitting positions are very difficult, with my front sight bouncing several minutes of angle with every heartbeat and I can barely breathe. Loosening the belt and undoing the button on the jeans and some by-God deliberate preparatory stretching like a serious athlete helped noticably. Today was instruction in the basics. And I need new gla$$e$ al$o, $igh. Rapunzel's barrel and free-float tube just got pushed back again.... The traditional positions were illustrated and practiced, with three different versions of Sitting shown in addition to Kneeling. Both Center Hold and Six-o'-Clock sight pictures. Post-and-aperture, blade-and-notch, bead-and-notch (Ruger 10/22 factory sights as opposed to the recommended type), and a scope reticle. The day starts with a Redcoat diagnostic target, to estimate the existing skill level (and to see if your weapon is still sighted in). On the left, the first target of the day and the first rounds I'd fired with that weapon in years; on the right, the last:
So I actually did improve. (The 400-yard target on the bottom left, I didn't count as intentional.) I've done all this before but the skills are perishable and this whole weekend is sort of an expensive practice session for upcoming CMP matches. Tomorrow we do the AQT and try for the Rifleman patch. Which I have but it's six and a half years old and now they have a pin I can order with a recent and valid score and I need to put that on my hat with all the others.
One technical tidbit I learned while helping a new shooter: My LTR is a 1980s-vintage 10/22 with the original flat magazine release, from back when there were only two or three factory models instead of twelebenteen:
Some years ago, Ruger made an extended paddle type standard on, it seems, all current models:
And that gets in the way of operating the bolt lock, which is the most infamously difficult part of the 10/22's manual of arms. (I should do another video on just that....) People who haven't been doing it for years have real trouble with it without that paddle giving them even less room to work. For comparison here's an aftermarket type which improves the original without making something else worse:
Surprisingly not terribly ache-y, though the Project has reduced their course of fire due to the last seven years of not-unjustified-panic-induced ammunition drought (they had some bricks of CCI something available for sale, but only to (parents on behalf of) youth shooters under 18). More tomorrow! And if something terrible doesn't happen, back to the same club again next Saturday for IPSC(-style) handgunnery like I used to do back when the universe pooped on me less often.

Show, chat & show every Sunday 1100 and 1700PT. Missed the first one because
I WENT TO APPLESEED again where I just barely made Rifleman again, with a 210 on one and 211 on another of five AQTs, according to an official scorer. One was scored slightly lower, and the other considerably higher, than I scored them myself. Now I can log in to the RWVA Forums and order the pin for my hat.
Appleseed is an all-weekend event. The first day is Serious Instruction in the traditional positions and the fundamentals of operating a rifle, by which I don't mean what the buttons and levers do which you ought to know before signing up for Appleseed. Tube magazines are contraindicated. The Ruger 10/22, in its various guises, remains the favorite for LTRs, followed by box-fed Marlins, I think I saw a Mossberg Plinkster, and... there isn't a lot else in current production that's suitable for conversion to a Liberty Training Rifle. A detachable-box-magazine-fed .22LR semiautomatic rifle or carbine, with a sling and preferrably with military-style sights, and at least two 10-round magazines which you know are reliable, is the definition of the LTR. For a while Marlin, or perhaps a distributor-exclusive, was offering a M795 so arranged, but those seem to have been discontinued.
The second day is to apply what's been learned on the aforelinked AQT. Scoring 210 or better, of a possible 250, earns Rifleman status. I barely made it. My eyesight has changed since the last time I did this and I'm having real trouble seeing the front sight as clearly as I should. It bears repeating that Appleseed is a physical event, where you are stretching and squashing yourself into various positions multiple times, and the arthritis and knees and spare tire are really getting in the way of that. If all you know about rifles and riflery comes from an XBox game, if you spend more on nachos than ammunition, you're gonna get beat up trying to keep up.
Quality ammunition is a necessity also, and a difficult one after seven-plus years of drought. This weekend I was using Federal red-box #AE22, from a four-hundred-round brick, copper-plated hollowpoint. Last time I used Federal blue-box #510 unplated solids, which I haven't seen for less than a gouged price for those seven-plus years. I had several misfeeds this weekend with the AE22 but I don't recall any six or seven years ago with the #510. Of which I have one precious brick left in my hoard which maybe I shoulda taken after all - I also noticed some inconsistency in the AE22, weak ejections, not every report sounding exactly the same. One time, at a previous Appleseed years ago, one shooter had at least two different brands/types of .22LR in a bag and was just... mixing them in the same stage. You can't even get a group that way much less adjust your sights to put said group on a target. Appleseed needs a full brick of .22LR, per shooter, per weekend, maybe more. And that brick should be an actual full brick, all with the same lot number, made by the same people on the same machines under the same astrological sign and phase of the moon with blood from the same sacrificial goat mixed into the priming compound. You need to eliminate ammunition as a variable. Most of Remington's .22LR product line does not bear consideration in my experience, though the guy next to me was doing amazingly well with a milk-carton of the infamous Golden.
And Old Media plays right along.

Speaking of a related cause, remember the guy who used a broomstick to knock a red-light camera out of alignment and posted it on YouTube?

During this weekend's Appleseed I barely made Rifleman again, on the very last AQT of the weekend and one other. I took Precious, my only complete AR, but never took her out of the car. I built Precious from parts over about half a year and she still gets tinkered with. For those of you building yours, here is an affordable AR armorer's tool which eliminates the problems some of the expensive ones have. The one I do have does appear to have that thick coating which will change its dimensions as it flakes off.
Rapunzel is intended to be a long-range precision AR, while Precious would be a multirole carbine - though I'm seeing a lot of 3-Gunners on YouTube using 20" barrels and extended-length free-float tubes. Such a barrel and tube are the next components I hope to buy for the Rapunzel Project, $igh, followed by a quality trigger and optics. A while back I found one I liked the look of but cost is a factor and here's a new one for a lot less.
Seriously. Go to Appleseed. I think I spent about 350 rounds - I was on the last box of the 400-round brick (the 400 was a preemptive response to a proposal, in the Clinton years, to require an "arsenal" license for 1,000 or more rounds of ammunition, which back then was only twenty bucks for two 500-round bricks, which were actually on the sagging and overflowing shelves). So seriously, get on the internet and hunt down a whole brick of something quality and have it in hand, before registering for an Appleseed near you. This stuff gets my endorsement, if you can find it, while this stuff was giving me misfeeds and inconsistent ejection, even a couple stovepipes.
It bears repeating that the lying, provably-fraudulent envirofacists won't be happy until everyone but them is living in caves, wearing grass skirts, and freezing to death in the dark.

Eyes. They worry me. I had real trouble focusing on the front sight of a 10/22-based LTR at Appleseed, and now I find difficulty in getting a sight picture with the 1911 I hope to use this weekend in my first handgun match in many moons. Experiments at the hovel with and without glasses are not encouraging. The Queen, with her longer sight radius, is better, but Precious' front sight is half a foot closer than the LTR, so even worse. I can get single-vision glasses at the local Mega-Lo-Mall place for seventy-odd bucks, and I could afford that with the next paycheck, but what if single-vision is no longer the answer? Bifocals don't do well with sighting systems. Progressive lenses may not work either, because in prone for riflery, I'm looking through the top left corner of the starboard lens. Pretty much the same with a Weaver grip in pistolcraft. I can drive fine with the too-many-years-old glasses I have, and I can read fine when I take them off, but the focus boundaries have definitely shifted. I've read about people taking their rifles to the optometrist, but around here just broaching the subject would get a fellow murdered by unquestioning-sociopaths-with-badges.

IPSC(-style) handgunnery at Wolverton. Videos to follow pending gumption.
Used my Cheap Philippine Clonetm 1911, in forty-by-Gawd-five of course. This was the first test of the replacement barrel I got several moons ago. And it ran fine, but shot way left. Fortunately there was a warmup target in the unused shooting bay, I observed the fall of shot, whipped out the multitool, cranked the rear sight over, and everything seemed fine for the rest of the match.
Except in the second stage, requiring weak-hand shooting, where my grip sucked and I feathered the trigger and scared the crap out of the match director who thought my pistol was doubling. I figured out what was happening - I'd done it before with the Queen - but he wasn't sure. In between other stuff he and I went back to that test target and fired some rounds and all seemed well, and I was even granted a reshoot for that stage.
Turns out I had exactly enough rounds for the day, one Winchester white-box of factory Ball and 67 of the old batch of handloads which apparenly are not going sideways anymore since I changed barrels LOYALREADER who thought my Lee Factory Crimp Die was undersizing the bullets (though the next batch will be with a Hornady taper-crimp die instead). Official results to follow but I "won" First in the Limited 10 division, of which I may have been the only entrant. I'll see how I placed overall when they email the spreadsheet in a day or three.
In other news, MILLICENT LIVES or will with a bit more coaxing. Millicent, as you may recall, is the Remington Model 1100 found abandoned a year or three ago as an actual pile-o'-parts in the back of sumd00d's shop, whose reassembly and redressing for racing required a few moons. In dry practice with dummy rounds, she locks empty every time she cycles regardless of rounds in the magazine, but forum discussions suggested that's a normal timing issue with the Remington trigger group lifter thingy and it's supposed to work right in live fire with the round being spat out of the tube whacking into some fiddly-bit.
This poor abandoned shotgun, estimated 1972 vintage, whose action spring tube and nut are also badly rusted and whose buttstock may have been shortened not for a youth shooter but for water damage, may not have spoken for decades. Her first shot today, single-loaded, was a stovepipe. Another such locked back normally. Two rounds loaded resulted in normal feeding but a final stovepipe. Three rounds worked perfectly. The final test - I only brought one box of plain Mega-Lo-Mart #7-1/2 and there was other stuff happening and it's an hour's drive back to the hovel - at full ten plus one capacity all ran perfectly, though I was surprised by the noticably slow cycle time. Hopefully some CLP will fix that. So now I know my replacement for Saint John, the centenarian long-recoil Model 11, will serve as a 3-Gun racer. And will give me a one-or-two-round advantage over the competition I'm likely to face in these small, local, unofficial matches. Woo. The fiberoptic sights clamped onto the vent rib of the spare barrel I picked up a couple years ago also appear to be Close Enough, judging by the reactions of the bits of debris I was aiming at on the backstop, and they even stayed on the barrel. Next would be to get the Easyloader installed, since I paid money for it and I even know where it is.
